Stanford Humanities Lab (SHL) is thrilled to announce the Metaverse U conference at Stanford University. This two day conference will be held on February 16th and 17th 2008 and feature speakers from a range of disciplines spanning industry and academia. Our lab has worked in virtual worlds for some years now and have seen interest in the space grow exponentially in recent years. We believe that the time has come for an event to tell the interesting stories from the evolving metaverse. The current generation of spaces is part of a larger historical picture and many lessons have been learned over the years. Our ultimate goal with Metaverse U is to create a broad conversation about the pressing question of what the metaverse should be.

Metaverse U's list of speakers includes:

Raph Koster (Metaplace),
Brewster Kahle (The Internet Archive),
Jeremy Bailenson (Stanford University),
TL Taylor (The IT University of Copenhagen),
Cory Ondrejka, Tony Parisi (Media Machines & Web3D),
Jon Brouchoud (Wikitecture),
Wm. LeRoy Heinrichs (Stanford Medical Center),
Rebecca Moore (Google Earth),
Parvati Dev (Innovation in Learning),
